This report describes the integration of colliery computer systems with specific reference to colliery operational system dealing with planning and production. A logical data model was built for the business of planning and production at colliery level. A database was built together with a suite of application programs to assess the financial viability of different planning alternatives. The database and application were installed and proven at Maltby colliery prior to the contract's intended completion date. The changed emphasis of coal mining in the UK and the privatization of British Coal has changed the business priorities to such an extent that the system developed under this contract is no longer in use.
